Nebraska ranks #1 on list of states by financial condition in a new study by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The study, which measures how well states can meet short-term and long-term bills, used each state’s 2016 fiscal report and the applied trends analysis to reports for each year 2006 until 2016. The state’s solid financial condition both short- and long-term is just another reason why businesses look favorably at Nebraska.
Five dimensions were analyzed and then combined to determine an overall ranking of a state’s fiscal solvency. These dimensions and Nebraska’s ranking in each are: cash solvency (12th), budget solvency (37th), long-run solvency (1st), service-level solvency (7th), and trust fund solvency (4th).
